Okay, am I the only one who wanted to fast forward through the movie and just watch the Mark parts? I just didn't like it and I think the character was soooo far from Mark. I just don't get how Mark got so much acclaim for this movie but his better movies got hacked by film critics.

I agree with you on the "not Mark" part. But the gentle, kind, and polite part of him in that movie is what made him even sexier.

Yeah, I kinda thought the parts without Mark were boring. The movie as a whole was good, though... Mark's answers to the questions Jack asked him when Mark first came over to his house sounded so fake in my opinion... I thought that it was cute when he kept on asking all that stuff to his lady in the first porn film they shot.

I sort of see what you mean. This movie wasn't to my personal taste (not because I'm a prude or anything but sometimes I just found it dragged a bit) but I can see why people liked it and why it is acclaimed. It was a gritty tale of a shadowy industry that just portrayed itself as glamourous but there was a lot of pain beneath the surface. So, it was a very difficult, complex subject to tackle.

Mark gets acclaim *because* "his character is so different" to him - it is a lot harder to act a role convincingly that is far removed from you.

And the reason I think it gets more acclaim than his other films are that his other films, while being more accessible to us are simpler films (eg. -Fear is basically a teen flick, POTA is basically an action remake, etc.). So while we enjoy them more, they are more straightforward.

Anyway, those are my thoughts on it...

what i didn't like about the movie, that it had so many things in it that i couldn't ever watch it with any of my parents...lol. I would have liked to see Mark in a better film around this time instead of boogie nights.But i didn't fastforward anything.

I thought the movie was great but it's the kind of film that you watch only once then wait for a LONG while to watch it again...That's just my opinion.
